A storm brings rain to California today — here’s what to expect
An unusual storm system is approaching the California coast, and its oscillating motion will determine how much rain the Bay Area will see on Wednesday, with the chances of heavy rain increasing as the day goes on.
The storm rotating offshore split into two eyes on Tuesday in an example of the Fujihara effect, and is expected to move closer to the coast over the next two days. Its front, pictured above, will streamline a series of rain bands across Northern California starting Wednesday afternoon. Each band will be able to produce heavier showers, but the precise nature of this meandering system could lead to a range of potential impacts for Bay Area residents.
